Purdue University and Ag-Analytics have established a new research partnership to be led by Davide Cammarano, asssociate professor of agronomy. Using precision agriculture data produced by Ag-Analytics tools, Cammarano’s research team will develop farm management strategies that optimize economic outcomes for businesses and individuals.

Ag-Analytics is a farm management platform that specializes in precision agriculture data analytics, remote sensing data analytics, and risk management for farmers, crop consultants and research partnerships. The company helps users mitigate risks, decrease environmental impacts, improve yields, and increase profits by making better-informed farm management decisions.

Under the partnership with Purdue, growers can opt in to work confidentially with university researchers using field-level precision agriculture data. All data will be anonymized and confidential, and researchers will be working only with growers who opt into the agreement with the university. Participating farmers will receive a free Ag-Analytics account, which offers access to high-resolution satellite NDVI imagery, historical and current weather conditions, insurance estimates and other key data.

“This venture will be mutually beneficial, advancing my research while helping Ag-Analytics develop tools for farmers and optimize their production,” Cammarano said. “The hope is that this partnership will create a living research hub for integrating digital tools and models that support farmers.”

“Partnering with Purdue enables precision agriculture research, which drives the industry forward toward data-driven decisions and deeper analysis of field operations,” added Joshua Woodard, CEO and founder of Ag-Analytics. “We are excited to establish a partnership with a premier agricultural research institution and a close neighbor to our West Lafayette, Indiana, headquarters.”
